We are happy to welcome You to a Free online course ‘Evidence based public policy making’. You may join it any time!


The course is a fundamental level introduction to Evidence-based public policy making that is aimed at developing the practical skills of civil servants for a public policy preparation based on thorough problem analysis and theory of change. The course is hands-on in nature as focuses on practical rather than theoretical policy development knowledge and skills. They are introduced by means of an example case and are subsequently practiced during the course as participants may work on their own case. The course is updated regularly to reflect the context of the Ukrainian public administration, in particular the CABMIN Regulation. The course covers key tools, methods and techniques in line with the EU Better Regulation Toolbox.
